I'm glad he's not selling out.1
It is entertaining for sure, you never know what is going to happen in this contest especially on Donald Trump's side. It is a hard call it will cement the Trump supporters and amuse the anti Trump supporters but how will it affect the undecided. The polls will be interesting on the bounce from the convention, looking at media coverage the convention can be viewed as Monday not great (plagiarism row), Tuesday very good (Bash Hillary Clinton day), Wednesday not good (Ted Cruz gets all headline, discussion on whether party unified or not) and Thursday should be good if Donald's speech goes well. Overall the convention may be more positive than negative for Trump but on reflection it may affect pivot to the middle, the attempt to give him a more personal touch. All the family speeches have gone unnoticed apart from the plagiarism row, Ivanka might turn it around a bit, she seems to be the most politically minded of the Trumps. Overall part 2, a chance lost for the pivot to general election audience. Again bounce important and the total impact will only come to bear when numbers from DNC come through depending how that went.
My thoughts on Ted Cruz, that was pure personal, if he was a sore loser, he would have stayed away or worried about the party, the same but that speech last night was revenge for what Trump said about his wife (ugly) and his father (involved in conspiracy to kill JFK). It could hurt any future presidential run in future, Trump supporters won't forgive but he didn't care.
i'm admire that he didn't take the normal ho hum political road
trump insulted his family, his wife and children in a way that is absolutely inexcusable. for cruz to stand up there an endorse him would be just another example of political b. s. i would hope trump would understand that since he says he's not a politician and shouldn't be interested in the standard political theater
Donald Trump has exposed the grim reality we as Americans would inevitably face... the engine behind our "democracy" is fueled by tribal ignorance and blatant disregard for substance.
If our country was dying of self-ingested toxins, our voters couldn't elect the antidote if it was spelled out in bold letters and the opposition was a charismatic cobra.
Republicans are saving face as much as possible as this kiddie dance known as the Republican primaries was exposed for all its integrity, which is zilch. They elected a master manipulator who pandered and guided the masses to their slaughter.
It's embarassing, because he was so bad at it. Yet it worked. So much for slick Ted and Golden Tongue Rubio. They look like try hards. Everyone does. Because I think we all underestimated just how stupid Americans can be.
Cruz is showing some balls, since other Republicans are too pansy to stop Trump's madness. And he has earned my respect, as a lifelong Democrat.
Gutsy' gamble. If Trump wins, his career is over. Trump loses he'll be seen as a political genius with a renewed life in politics. His got some big balls to go on stage at Donald's convention and disrespect him like that.
I think Cruz is a Jackass, that Jackass just made the State of Texas proud.
Well shit, this is the first time I ever agreed with a fucking Republican in my entire life. Good job, Ted.
he's trying to play the fence. He is going to be running for his own elections in the near future, maybe even president again at some point. If trump looses, he doesn't want to have the tag of being one of the few who actually endorsed trump. But if trump wins, he can at still say that he at least spoke at the convention. Cruz is a slimy politician, and so he's going to play games like this in order to get ahead. Tbh his whole speech was a snooze fest. Just more empty words.
Poor dude, can't get passed the fact he lost against Trump.
He's still butthurt :(
I am proud. Though I am mostly conservative I am voting for Hillary Clinton. She isn't that radical and she has foreign policy experience, but most of all she's sane.
Ted cruz is sore looser. I think if you are a real American you will vote for Trump. The other idiot will do nothing to hep this country.
He's a sore loser. His odds of victory in 2020 have tanked.
He lost. He should have moved on instead of acting like a butthurt loser.
Fuck Ted Cruz, Should deport his crybaby ass!
At least we know he's not a whore.
Two derps taliking s**t
i don't care about politics
No idea what this is about but anyone that does endorse trump is a donkey. It's like people WANT world war 3 to happen.
I don't care either way, it's not like Trump needed it. I like that he didn't do it because I don't like Trump but I mean is it really that serious?
It didn't surprise me. I always thought Cruz was in idiot. And a lot of people did last night... he got booed off the stage.
Proud. At this point it is not a matter of whether or not you are a republican or democrat or otherwise, it is a matter of do you want a crazy ignorant biggot who doesn't know the first thing about being president in office?
eh. his choice. idc.
No, I'm not proud of Ted Cruz. What he did last night wasn't classy at all. Obviously, it is ultimately his choice whether or not to endorse Mr. Trump. However, he shouldn't have rambled on for 20 minutes if he wasn't going to endorse Mr. Trump. This was Mr. Trump's party and the move Ted Cruz pulled was awful. Kasich didn't endorse Mr. Trump, he didn't attend and didn't waste everyone's time and ramble for 20 minutes.
